If I had stayed in Hollywood I would have
ended up like Alan Ladd and Gail Russell -
dead and buried by now. That rat race killed
them and I knew it would kill me, so I had
to get out. I was never psychologically meant
to be a picture star. I never took it seriously.
I couldn't 'live' being a 'movie star' and I
couldn't 'camp' it,
and I hated being something I wasn't.
